CHAPTER XXII
SITZKRIEG

THE vales of Perigord, lined with poplars and willows, were more beautiful and peaceful than ever in that month of July 1939. The purple roofs of the tenant farm of Brouillac in the evening sunlight stood in soft contrast to the green of the fields. Only the wasps, jealous of my flowers, in the mornings still disturbed my tranquil solitude. But this enchanted silence, this prodigious immobility of nature seemed to me, as in July 1914, charged with mysterious menace. Each day when we opened the newspaper we expected to see in it the death warrant of our happiness. Poland, Dantzig, the Corridor ... When the terms of the Treaty of Versailles had become known persons of intelligence had believed that from this bizarre map, from these impacted countries, the next war one day would come. After a thousand diverse feints it was at this vulnerable point that Mars once more spied his prey.
At the beginning of August we learned of the death of Charles Du Bos. My sorrow was all the more acute because I had not seen him again. He had just spent two years teaching at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. The tempo of American life had been too rapid for his feeble strength. In him I lost a friend who had guided me, uplifted me and often forced me to live, as he would say, `at the extreme point of myself'. I, like all his friends, had often laughed at his gravity, at his masses of pencils, at his long quotations, at his carefully cherished maladies. Like so many supposed hypochondriacs, he had given irrefutable disproof to our scepticism by his death, and now we remembered nothing except his virtues. I saw again the affectionate softness of his eyes, the excited trembling of his long moustache, the thick coats which swathed his martyred body. From now on who would talk to me as he had done of Benjamin Constant or of Sainte-Beuve? From now on who would talk to me with so much penetrating affection about myself? We were told by those who had been present at his end that he had died peacefully as a saint and a poet. Poor Charlie! For twenty years he had suffered, but he had been able to extract from the sufferings of the body the salvation of the soul.
